There is so much negativity and chaos surrounding us on a daily basis that I find it extremely valuable to take a step back and look at the good things, those that can bring a smile to my face no matter how bad things may be. By doing so, I know that I can look back at those things or reach out to them when I am struggling. With that being said,
10 things that make me smile are:
-My son and his goofiness
-When people do things for me that I would’ve had to do
-Pretty fall leaves and colors
-Seeing my loved ones succeed
-Unexpected acts of kindness
-Good home cooked meals
-Getting closer to my goals
What would be on your list?
It’s a new year, so I figured I’d update this list! Here are 10 things that currently make me smile:
1- Seeing myself get good grades after putting in a lot of hard work.
2-Seeing my son or other children giggle uncontrollably.
3-A tasty home-cooked meal.
5-When my boyfriend catches me off guard with a compliment.
6-Being financially stable.
7-When memes are really relatable to any of my current situations.
8-Playing board games.
9-Good WWE wrestling matches.
